WHILE THERE probably are many tougher hills than the Matterhorn, located in Saddleback Park in Orange County, Calif., I’d wager few have had as many would-be conquerors as our humble mound. Not long ago, we decided to enhance the hill’s image by offering $50 to the first four-stroke, and a like amount for the first two-stroke, that reached the top.

THE Sears Point National was, for press people accustomed to the average AMA National, a sheer delight. The course management personnel, “Craig” Murray and dynamic Bill McCormick, treated the working press like human beings with a job to do, and helped us to feel that we were there for the good of the race and the speedway.

JOHN DUNN
Is piston speed the main factor for long engine life? I have read that “low revvers” don’t necessarily last longer than “high revvers.” At 65 mph, the piston speed for the Honda 450 K-2 is 2157 ft./min. and 2184 ft./min. for the TR6R. Would the K-2 be as reliable as the TR6R? How does the bore/stroke ratio affect engine reliability?

To speak of taste in the atmosphere one feels while reading your reaction to the letter of M.D. Barnard of London, England, (CW, Sept. ’69) is rather incongruous to say the least. Such smugness was uncalled for; you certainly “lost your cool.” You exhibited a distinctly irrational and spiteful manner in your response—such name-calling—no class.

Bonneville 1969 had all the tension of a moonshot at the Cape for Don Vesco, out on the salt for the first time with his double-engined Yamaha streamliner. After the tow-away from the start, crewman Jim Chitwood pulls the release wire when Don’s engines fire.

JUST LIKE PEOPLE, motorcycles go through evolutionary stages; some improve, others get worse. Most importantly, some are incapable of evolving quickly enough and so expire, like dinosaurs during the Ice Age. By keeping a sensitive hand on the pulse of American motorcycle competition, Bultaco has managed to keep abreast of the ever-changing racing scene.

ONCE UPON a time there were many famous motorcycling events— Laconia and Springfield and Catalina and Langhorne and all the others. Now they are only nostalgic names to be bantered about by those “old-timers” who have more than just two or three years of riding experience.

WITH BITTER, bigoted battles between extremist Catholic and Protestant groups raging in the streets of Belfast, it was touch and go whether the Grand Prix would be held at all; the Dundrod circuit is but five miles from the city. At 11 o’clock the night before race day, an attempt was made by the authorities to stop racing, but race organizer Bertie Mann finally persuaded them otherwise.

Represented by two strong New England teams, the U.S. defeated Canada soundly in the second round of the Canada/USA Challenge Scramble at Copetown, Ontario. For both teams and spectators, the American whitewash was at least a surprise but, just as emphatically, there was no denying the first win in four years was deserved.

Scientific studies have proven that noise can be just as fatiguing as physical exertion, and the racer is no exception. Modern high performance two-strokes produce noise of a very extreme nature, and constant exposure to it will surely have physical effect. J & R Manufacturing sells a straight-through type silencer that takes the edge off the racket, but not power output. These silencers bolt on to all expansion chambers, and if you have an outsized or odd-shaped stinger J & R will modify one to fit. The sound damping fiberglass filler can be cleaned and reused, but new ones cost only $2. The J & R silencer will not make your bike street legal but will free your ears from that piercing ring-ding note. J & R silencers are available from dealers or direct from J & R Manufacturing, Dept. CW-11, 6001 Maywood Ave., Huntington Park, CA 90255. Price is $8.95.
